Durnstein is a little village right on the banks of the Danube. I imagine in summer it would be a most beautiful village. If you wanted to you could walk up the hill to the monument to Richard the Lionheart. I was content to stay at the bottom and take photos! After Durnstein, and seeing off the bike riders, we boarded the ship to sail on to Melk. As I was leaving the ship for the walking tour of Melk, I ran into DH who had just arrived back from his ride. He also joined the walking tour. Melk is also another interesting place with the Abbey of Melk towering over the city. It did turn bitterly cold in Melk with nowhere to escape the winds. We cut our trip short and headed back to the boat for a warming Schnapps!
